  1. Terry, Here's something I came across earlier this evening which I thought may interest you.

    More Pennies

    I have a 13 width. How unusual is this?

    1698 Half penny

    Thanks Chris, yes indeed, though sought rather than found. 😉

    1698 Half penny

    As Rob suggests these are difficult to find having been struck for three months only. I have two, but they were bought several years apart and it's some time since I last saw one for sale anywhere. Note mine were struck from different reverse dies.

    Me too. £3, wins or no, is neither here nor there.

    'Minor'? Ridiculous. How many confirmed examples do we now have, seven, eight? They've included the 1694 MVRIA halfpenny for many years even though, until a recent fourth came to light, only three were known. And if we're talking about early milled minor varieties, and whether or not they are deemed worthy of inclusion, just one 'off the top of my head' example of many, I'd suggest they might like to reconsider would be their 1675 farthing, no stop after CAROLVS. Again, been listed for years, and given a value, yet has anyone here ever seen one? I haven't, nor am I aware of anyone who has.

    1981 25p "Experimental Coin"

    Same design as the old halfpenny trial dies. I have the 1957 one.
  8. Michael-Roo

    1879 Penny shuttle variety

    How about this for 'extra metal'.

    1953 Farthing

    The most common.

    Standard 2/B, and not a proof.

    Sachin Tendulkar, surely?
